Why is Webmail asking me to change my password?

When logging into webmail, you might be shown a CPANEL screen asking you to change your password.

This is important because it means that your old password is not safe enough and that a hacker/cracker will be able to guess your password.

For this reason, simply enter your old password and choose a new password.

What is Password Strength?

When you enter a new password, the website will automatically calculate the "strength" of the new password. The higher the "strength" is, the harder it will be for a hacker/cracker/scammer to guess your password.

For your email account's safety, you must choose a password that has a strength of at least 60.

IMPORTANT: Anything lesser than "Password Strength: 60/100" will not work.

To make sure your new password is strong, make sure all the letters are capitalised and include some numbers.
